I remember being told as long as possible,but I soon changed my mind.
I breastfed for 9 months was going for a year but didn't make it.
It's a very good start and it paid off my son didn't have an ear infection til kindergarten.
It's the best way when you think about it,coming from you,healthy,natural and free.
But I remember seeing a llittle boy around 6 tell his Mom I want to nurse and she accomadated him.
Okay i feel that if he walk over to you and tell you he needs to nurse,he can go to the fridge and chose his beverage.
I do think there's a point when it should cease.
Just my opinion.
